George’s Postcard Note: We entered the Priory, which is now a state-supported monument. Roses still smelled sweet, and the view from the cloister garden over the valleys opening onto more valleys was as spectacular as the drive up was scary. We went into the old nave, I set up my stool and hardly saw the other visitors. I was entranced by the scene: A spotlighted, amazingly ornate, freestanding tribune, all carved rose marble. It frames an altar in the distance, lighted by a window. Among its carvings were wonderful animals, flowers, and even some people. As the marble has aged, I think the veining has become a brighter pink.
